As soon as XXX and his girlfriend reached his house, he said that they were sitting on the front steps when XXX heard a noise that made him and his girlfriend very scared, he said it was a low but harsh growl and then a grunt. Just then he said he noticed that the neighbors dog was totally quiet and it seemed to cower and whimper and that is when he noticed a tall creature running across the neighbors front lawn and disappeared. He said the creature had a long stride long arm that hung down to his knees and it ran by in a semi hunched over position, he said it stood about 10 ft tall and it had no neck that he could see.
